Alicia Keys gave a moving performance during day two of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Dedicating her set to the mother of fallen children, the Grammy Award-winning singer took a moment to deliver an important message before singing “Superwoman” from her 2007 album As I Am.
“Women are the answer. We have the power to ensure this country gets on the right path,” Keys said on Tuesday evening (July 26). “I dedicate this song to the Mothers of the Movement and all mothers who have lost their sons and their daughters to senseless violence. Until we deal with gun violence in this country, we can’t claim home of the brave.”
Keys has been an active voice politically lately. Just recently, she organized high-profile celebrities for a video titled, “23 Everyday Actions Punishable By Death If You’re Black In America.”
